This frequent exercise in moving does curious thing to memories, on one hand it strengthens one’s ability to forget and move on; and on the other hand and in another way it strengthens the ability to remember. Since the doll has to be thrown away and cannot take the rigours of another move anymore, one must commit forever to memory its face, its clothes, how it came to us, our summer afternoons spent with her at tea parties.
